Young talent injects growth into pub industry

15% of small business owners in the pub and bar sector fall between the ages of 25 – 34 years old according to a report by Barclays on their business customers. Rather than be deterred by the challenging work and long hours, it seems that young entrepreneurs are heading up pubs and rejuvenating a sector of the industry that had previously seen a decline in business, with a large number of pubs closing down.

That’s a lot of growth and optimism for the industry!
